The snorkelling was great, saw turtles and large range of fish and coral. All seen by swimming off the beach. Turtle rehab ran by Rita was great. Condition of room and pool were average need maintaining. Staff were friendly but could be more helpful they did not seem to want to improve your stay. Beaches were great.

The Barrier Reef is right there. We enjoyed kayaking and the glass bottom boat. The walks in the rainforest were wonderful. Limited food options but all the meals we had were excellent.

Nice view, clean room. Restaurant booking is a bit disappointing and the other buffet option wasn’t as good as we thought.

Rooms were dark, if you opened curtains you got miserable "view and" no privacy. 1st night i spend on a room with constant knocking noise from ceiling fan apparently from room below . I was advised resort was fully booked that night but when i went for a walk at 3am there were a number of empty rooms. Night manager gave m edesr plaques
